NYC participatory park design

peoplemakeparks

People Make Parks is a joint effort of Partnerships for Parks and the Hester Street Collaborative that aims to involve ordinary citizens in the design of public parks.  The project helps citizens compile local knowledge to develop a vision for a park, educates them about the capital development process for building or renovating a park and helps connect them and their vision to the Department of Parks & Recreation at opportune moments in that process.  Urban Omnibus interviews the project’s organizers, Anoo Siddiqi and Hillary Angelo, about the ideas behind People Make Parks and their outreach strategy moving forward with the agenda of increasing City and public engagement in participatory design.
